Services

Billion Dollar Boy combines creativity, technology and a global network of influencers to publish content and drive engagement across social media.



Billion Dollar Boy helps brands and agencies reach targeted audiences through influencer marketing, such as its promotion with Stuggy for StudioCanal. They consider a number of factors when matching the right influencer to the right brief, for example considering an influencers' tone of voice and creative aesthetic.



The company also manages campaigns across all Social Media networks, for example a Vine campaign on behalf of FMCG giant Danone by combining traditional advertising (OOH posters) with a series of six-second Vines.
